• Long-term Solutions to Denture Problems

    Dentures have been a stalwart in dentistry for many years. Providing a quick, minimally invasive solution to missing teeth problems, patients with missing teeth can have a set of dentures created quickly and inexpensively. It’s not surprising a dental solution that brings back teeth function and a normal appearance has proved such a popular option for dental patients over many years. There are, however, well documented problems associated with dentures, especially if patients are looking for a more permanent, long-term solution to loose or missing teeth.

    In the short-term dentures can fit comfortably in your mouth but they’re not designed for longer term comfort and can impact quality of life over a period of time. Over time your teeth restorations and dentures will gradually loosen and cause a number of problems associated with discomfort, embarrassment and the inability to eat and drink the food you want.

    Dentures eventually loosen with the passage of time because of their removable nature. The jawbone underneath undergoes deterioration due to the loss of stimulation from the tooth roots which can cause bone atrophy. As the jawbone becomes thinner, the once comfortable-fitting dentures will also become looser making it harder for the patient to eat and smile with confidence. If you’re not confident your teeth with hold up when you bite an apple then you simply stop eating them. The same goes for a myriad of different food groups and as a result your quality of life is severely impacted, confidence drops and you simply don’t feel right in yourself. The dentures that were used to solve your missing teeth problem end up becoming another problem. What patients really want when it comes to their teeth is peace of mind.

    Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. One of the great joys of working at Puresmile Slough Dental & Implants in Buckinghamshire is seeing patients who’ve lost teeth or who’ve struggled with loose teeth and dentures regain the ability to eat virtually anything they want. Seeing a patient smile again with confidence because they can see their teeth appear natural. without the contours of their face changing, is something our experienced dental team never get tired of.

    The implants are tiny titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth restorations like dental crowns or a dental bridge. The implants also help provide stimulation that keeps the jawbone and facial structure healthy, preventing bone deterioration or atrophy.

    If you’re interested in a long-term loose-denture solution then you should consider dental implants as the perfect treatment for missing teeth, tooth loss and loose-fitting dentures.
